Arsenal v Wolves: 3 Points a Must to Keep our 4th Place Hopes Alive

Hello, hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are ready to come back to the real world.

Thanks to the tube strikes going on, Arsenal get an extra day to prepare for their match against Wolves. This now means that the Gunners now have to play 3 times in a 7 day period. This includes: Wolves, QPR, and Fulham.

Arsene Wenger will be looking at players fitness level’s to determine the starting line up. One player who Wenger may choose to rest is the in-form, Robin Van Persie.

The most important thing is that the team wins,” said Wenger. “The individual records are not vital for me — they are just a sign that the team scores. “I believe the great players know what is important. What is important on the pitch is to make the right decision for every situation you face. He does that very well.”

“We will see — it will be a big demand for him [to play all three matches] but I don’t know yet,” he said.

“I don’t want to stop him,” said Wenger. “I am very happy if he does it but if he can combine the record with staying fit.”

Resting Van Persie will be good for him, but I feel that there are a few players that should be rested. Aaron Ramsey has been looking fatigued of late, and so has Walcott.

Predicted Starting XI

Szczesny; Miquel, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Djourou; Song, Arteta, Rosicky; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh, Gervinho

Arsenal have been on a good form of late, winning four out of their last six premier meetings. Wolves, on the other hand, have lost four of their last six. Wolves have also been poor on the road this season, so Arsenal will fancy their chances of getting a good result.

Hopefully, Arsenal will come out comfortable winners tomorrow with no injuries for us to to leap-frog Chelsea into 4th place.

Come on Arsenal!

  1. Stop talking about top four. Arsenal should be aiming for the league title, no matter how they started. Its a shame that almost everyone have lowered their expectation on the team. If the team cannot compete on the wages paid by other teams, at least they should use all the resources available to them in order to compete. If the manager refuses to use all his resources, then he should be held accountable, if he does not win the title this year. It has been too long, We have given him all these years and now he is blaming other teams for his woes. In life, there are no guarantees, so you can’t always be thinking about grooming players for the future. There are no excuses, Wenger should be held accountable for not winning the league, not a top four finish.

  2. It would seem important to me that Van Persie not only stay fit but happy as well. If he wants to play to break the record, let him play.

  3. 4th positn is not a solution, wat we should aim at is for the title challange. Lets take any game seriously guys. Restng rvp is not the solution, let wenger come up with a strong team .
